Wader Hanger

Postby mdycrk » Mon Feb 11, 2013 11:07 am

Anyone have any nice wader hangers they've built or had built? I'm thinking of building myself one out of probably oak, to have in the garage. Anyone built one, or have any nice pictures of some they've seen?

Simplest I've seen were just dowels glued into holes drilled in 2Xs. Not pretty, but entirely functional.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I cut a 2x4 about 3 foot long, then some about 6" long. Screwed the 6" pieces perpendicular to the long piece. I did 2 about 2-3 inches apart, then spaced the next 2 about 6-7 inches apart. Works great. I've got 2 pairs of waders hanging and several knee boots. Costs...nothing.

Searched around from my post a long time ago and found a picture.

put them in a trash bag after sprying them with armorall, tie the top and put under the bed. A friend used a pair of red ball waders for 20 (that's right- 20) years and finally his son borrowed then and put a piece of cane through them.

Hey Grizz do the ducks flare when you wear the pink boots? :biggrin:


J/K, great idea. I was planning on making one with a couple pieces of 2'' or 3'' pvc pipe. Might go this route so I can store all the knee boots too. BTW my little girl has some pink boots also.

That's my setup. Not glued, just drove the dowels in a snug hole bored in a ~2x3. Works great. I have boards on two sides of my laundry room. One about six foot long holds waders and knee boots. On the other side a board about 8' or so for coats/coveralls. Same dowel system but spaced accordingly.

I bought a bunch of hooks at Lowe's for in the shed to hang randoms on. Had a couple of the U shape ones with the big lag comming out of the middle of them. Found the studs and screwed them in, back of the boots fit in them great and are yet to fall. Had mine this way since we bought our house 4 years ago.
